Forget about duffles, weekenders, totes, rollers, or whatever else you cram your stuff in before hitting the road. It's time to consider a classic, the suitcase. Or, the Hard Graft Carry On Suitcase ($906), to be more specific. This artisan-crafted case is made of Italian leather and British wool, so it will stand up to the treatment of even the clumsiest baggage handler. But, you may choose to bypass that route altogether and bring it on the plane. It's the perfect size for an overhead compartment, and a removable shoulder strap means you can carry it comfortably as you run to make your connection.
Block out unwanted light, hide your headphones, and support your neck all at the same time with the Travel HoodiePillow ($20). This ultimate airline accessory features an inflatable neck pillow that's built on to the bottom of a spacious hood, which features a pair of drawstrings for blocking everything out. It's suggested that it's also good for reading, watching TV, and studying, but frankly, all we want it for is to keep the creep next to us in seat 26B from making eye contact. [via]
Tired of long walks from terminal to terminal? Make your next trip more manageable by packing your stuff inside a piece of Micro Scooter Luggage ($250). Developed in collaboration with Samsonite, this unique suitcase features hard-side construction, a 26L capacity that makes it ideal for short trips, and built-in kickboard that folds out to turn the entire thing into a scooter, allowing you to roll from place to place with ease.
